How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and do not cover them. Place in warmth 15-20C (60-70F), and keep moist.

Potting on/Thining Out

Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost. It is easier to transplant little clumps of Lobelia seedlings than to try to transplant single seedlings.

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out when danger of frost has passed. Allow 15cm (6in) between plants.
